Such solution may work if you would write

void bar::slot()
  if(!this) return;
// or
  if(!this) throw something();

But I this is just a hack.

More then that, throwing is not good idea because generally
I do not want this situation be treated as a error.

Such "second" bind should return a "void" function that does
nothing, that what I solve in weak_fn.

Actually the code of weak_fn is quite simple (when using variadic
templates, otherwise it is just many copies of same code for 0, 1
and N parameters).

Suggestions? Comments?
